    I have an '02 bought in December of '01, 135,000 miles on it, and she still looks pretty darn good to me. Wonderful cars, love them to death. The only thing I wish they would have offered was the 3.3/3.8 under the hood. I know it is a bit of work to get it there, but it would have been a pretty nice little hotrod. Yeah, I know, turbo, but some of us aren't big turbo fans.

    I actually have the two of them, still in the family, oldest daughter has my original and my grand daughter just got her license, learning how to drive a manual. Thank goodness Arizona is flat (haha), the other is auto and wife and daughter are going to take it from CA to Florida on a trip this weekend, so that should be fun for them.

    Point of order, aren't *all* 2001 PTs original? Unless of course they are PT kit cars based on an MG chassis......

    Ordered I think around August 2000, delivered December 2000 Limited Edition. Still have it at 87,000 miles. I never did any of the recall fixes cause it ran so well I did not want to jinx it. I definitely need to do engine mounts and new bushings in the suspension now but I still like it what can I say...

    I had a 05, loved it . It was a 5 speed manual. It was hard on motor mounts. I wasn't realy trying but I think it was doing hole shots with the 5 speed.
